cuomo from erik. james says in connecticut there are two major problems, the deficit and more taxes. both problems are created by one party rule. what are the big issues in your state? join that conversation on facebook by looking for c-span. let us take a look at the balance of power in state. we can see here who controls the governors' seats. 30 republicans states in red, 19 democratic, and one independent in rhode island. but as your what ray has to say on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i wanted to say that i believe here in the state of texas -- our standard of living is what keeps is going. nobody can live on $7.25 hour. our standard of living is so below the economy it should be at $12 per hour. everything is so expensive right now. it should be, at the very least, $12 per hour. host: you are calling to raise the minimum wage? caller: yes, ma'am. if everybody makes at least $12 an hour, this country would boom so fast. here in the state of texas -- i think it is everywhere. the corruption of the governor and the mayor. big corporate donors, big business owners. they
in the reagan administration, they had 7.1 gdp growth. so they had the right fiscal and tax and monetary policies to turn things around then. i think those same principles would work today. >> there are two issues on the table here. number 1, what is wrong with the economy and are the policies correcting it or leading us in the right direction isn't other is the immediate response by washington. some in washington to the very grim news. americans woke up to feel extreme pain, learning that the economy shrunk in the last quarter and the first thing they hear out of washington is with leader peuloseet and white house press secretary, blaming the republicans and even senator marco rubio was quick to release a statement, casting the blame right back on president obama. but there is no effort to -- let's jump into this and solve this problem together. instead, it's immediately start the blame. >> you are absolutely right. one of the things we have to look at, how do we get capital flowing in the united states economy so we have growth and expansion of our small businesses. we look at our corp
where republicans and democrats seem to agree that something needs to be done on tax issues or fiscal issues, where there has been an impasse for many years now. host: in terms of the principle, how detailed is the outline? are we talking about a bill taking shape or just a sketch at this point? caller: it is more of a sketch, the first step in trying to get an actual bill going. basically these are legislative goals that include four areas, one is a package, one is overhauling the existing system, another is establishing a way to ensure that there is less illegal hiring of workers, and another is to create a guest worker program. but those goals, we do not know how that will be achieved or worked out over the next few months. things are supposed to get going here as soon as next month. senator schumer and the other senators believe that they could have something by late spring, early summer. host: looking at "the san antonio news," we have this headline -- "upset republicans." what are you hearing about republicans getting things through? caller: house republicans do not seem to be o
. >> fox news lart. issue of americans moving tons avoid paying higher taxes. golfer phil mickelson recently complained about paying higher taxes and said he may move elsewhere but apologized or admitting that. tiger woods moved to florida who has no state income tax. states with the higher taxes are among those seeing their populations decrease. the high rates are in orange while states with owe over head are seeing population growth some of those are in green. simon rosen burg who is president and founder of a think tank advocacy organization. a fellow at the american enterprise institute and former speech riert for president george w. bush. if you look at what's happening in the state eliminating their state income tax or lowering their state income tax it is remarkable for those choosing the opposite route. >> that is exactly right. what the democrats don't seem to understand is taxes effect behavior. wh when you have a situation in high tax states like california like the tax policies have become compensatory it's not just phil mickelson and tiger woods. the state of california
at keorpt business tax rate which is the highest in the world we need to turn that around so we can create opportunities and get people hired and start producing again. another thing we have to be concerned about with this anemic almost retrograde g.d.p. number, you have a federal government that spending 25% of our degrees domestic product and that is going to increase from 30-31% over the next eight to ten years. once again, we have to look at the spending that is being done up in washington, d.c. here in january you see with the payroll tax cut that was taken from 4.2%, went back to 6.2%. you have a lot of people seeing that missing revenue in their state checks. you have eight new taxes from the affordable care act. >> greta: if i were a member of congress, i would hope the president or the white house press secretary, i would hope that if i woke up and saw a shrinking economy, i would think to myself, what am i doing wrong? i'm a political leader. i'm a member of congress or whatever. what is it that i am doing wrong. i would hope that my first thought would fire off a statement, sayi

, april 15th. not just tax filing day but the date by which congress has promised to adopt a budget resolution. they even this time stake their pay on it, agreeing to reach a deal or face suspension of their paychecks until they reach a deal. that might just be enough of a carrot to make them actually present a budget that takes on our a bah looning deficit. but that battle may make the recent battle over tax hikes for the rich seem like a friendly game of badminton. big spending cuts are needed and they will hit americans where it hurts -- in their entitlements. i'm talking about health care, medicare, social security. president obama emboldened by his re-election has already drawn his so-called line in the sand. now republicans have to come to the proverbial table. perhaps the most powerful republican in washington, eric cantor, says he and his fellow republicans will have a plan and they are ready to deal. >> i think it's important that we be here as members of the u.s. congress. there are six of us who are here. really interested in the discussion about the global economy. obvio
taxes, paying a penalty, learning english, and then going to the back of the line behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. that's only fair. >> and i'll have commentary on that in a moment. i'm not all on board with it. it sounds good, but the path to earn citizenship has a lot of supporters in congress. in fact, it's the same path outlined by the group of senators. president obama's plan has a few more specifics. the path to citizenship is not contingent on meeting security triggers like additional border security and unmanned drones. it calls for improvements to immigration courts. and it requires the same visa rights for same-sex couples as everyone else. now, these minor differences cause some grandstanding from republican senator marco rubio out of florida today. rubio intends to make this issue political. >> if this endeavor becomes a bidding war to see who can come up with the easiest, quickest, and cheapest pathway to greencard possible, this thing is not going to go well, folks. >> of course there is really only one place for republicans to go when they want t

with their taxes. the uncertainty was horrendous, the mood sour. we were getting all sorts of cross currents about what would happen with corporate and personal taxes. were they going to raise taxes, were capital gains going up? would the alternative minimum tax ensnare millions of people? would businesses have to start a whole brand new round of layoffs? executive after executive came on this show to say, look, we can't do a thing. what's the point? we will just have to undo it. business confidence plummeted, and the idea of forming a new business. well, remember when the ceo of paychex came on and talked about the paralysis caused by the cliff? who would leave his job to start a new business in that environment? okay. retail sales weren't that bad. but they nose dived right at the end of the quarter. retailers were afraid to restock inventory, figuring that spending would drop off the cliff right along with the nation's finances. it was all in all a very bad time for our nation. now, overlay the storm of the century for the northeast, one that shut down the wealthiest area of the country for sev
